Research Information


On 30 November 2016 Altmetric will be upgraded to a new version. The updated platform aims to make it easier to find research outputs and associated data, and also to visualise the data in more meaningful ways. 

Key features of the new platform include:

  • Brand new user interface with enhanced visualisations
  • New option to drill down into mentions for a specific time period
  • New chart of attention over time and breakdown by source
  • New panel that shows trending news stories about research outputs

For the first time, University of Cambridge users will be able to login to the system via Raven and an individual account will be set up automatically when you do so.  Existing accounts (which previously used different logins) have been transferred to the new system, so you should see all your saved workspaces and alerts when you login via Raven.

For more details about how to do this, visit the Research Information Moodle here.
